Kemba Walker is expected to play under minutes restriction in scrimmages and seeding games.

The head coach of the Boston Celtics, Brad Stevens, said the team wants Walker to be 100% ready when the playoffs start.

“The goal is to not be limited once the playoffs come around. We’re going to move very slowly with Kemba, make sure he can strengthen (his knee) and make sure he’s all good to go as we enter the seeding games and into the playoffs,” Stevens told reporters.
